We sat down for a virtual chat with our new Creative Designer and Strategist, Maline, to chat about their career journey and personal passions.
How has your past work or volunteer experience helped you in your current position?
I have had a wide range of jobs from multimedia design to curation to teaching. This has kept me flexible and always willing to learn new skills, as well as introducing me to a variety of people from different backgrounds!
What are you most passionate about professionally? Personally?
Professionally, I am passionate about facilitating open communication through branding and design. Assisting people and companies with expressing themselves visually is very important to me since I am a visual learner. Personally, I am passionate about equity, rights for all, and critically deconstructing pop media.
What moment or accomplishment in your career are you most proud of?
In my career, I am most proud of the branding and design for social media that I did for previous clients. It was very satisfying to be able to follow the results that came from our efforts, and to learn from the people who engaged with the content!
Is there something you hope to achieve while at APEX/ruckus?
While in this role I hope to learn more about how the different branches of PR work together as a unified structure to communicate messages and how design fits into that structure. I’m excited to learn from such a friendly and skilled team!
Three interesting facts about yourself.
1. I moved to Canada in late 2019, so I’m still learning about all the different neighbourhoods of the GTA.
2. In my spare time, I like to garden, cook, and draw.
3. I am a loyal Helvetica fan – I blame the Helvetica documentary for this.
